A writ, if necessary, is expensive. I called a firm that is listed in an earlier post on this board (not in the recommended firms) about two weeks ago, and shortly into the conversation, the lawyer tole me it would be $7500 with no guarantees. That’s too pricey for me, especially in light of the uncertainty. I am a Tier 1, sentenced in 2005, and have finished my 10 years two years ago, so I’m willing to wait. Good luck to all with your individual circumstances!
